About this product

The Vermeer CS418B core saw is designed to cut 4 – 18 inch (10 – 46 cm) diameter holes in hard surfaces, like asphalt and concrete, to help utility contractors safely locate and excavate underground utilities. The core saw is built on a portable, compact trailer measuring 137 inches (348 cm) long and 69 inches (175 cm) wide for easy jobsite access and can be towed with a ½ ton pickup truck. Core sawing creates less disruption to traffic, less manual labor and preserves the road integrity when compared to saw cutting. Powered by a 25 HP Kohler EFI engine, the core saw has a two speed operation that can generate up to 380 RPM for varying job site conditions. The CS418B features an on-board water tank to cool the saw bit and can be easily moved into position with the telescoping and pivoting arm.
